At the venue that usually attracts audiences hoping to witness Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas’s “Stomp”, Christmas crowds are going to be lining up to witness “The Night Before Christmas”. Whilst the former will remain in its evening slot, the latter is a seasonal treat that is certain to put a smile on the faces of youngsters as it performs during the daytime throughout December. So if you are looking for something a little more festive in 2010, then “The Night Before Christmas” at the Ambassador’s Theatre could be just the ticket to see in the big day with style.
Over the centuries there have been an abundance of tales to utilise the title “The Night Before Christmas” and perhaps the most famous is the poem by Clement Clarke Moore, or even the story by Nikolai Gogol. After all, there is only one date on the calendar that sees children across the country overcome with excitement and that’s the 24th December, so it is no wonder that the title has remained such a well known and warming one over the years.
In this incarnation of “The Night Before Christmas” we are introduced to a festive elf as he works hard to get Santa’s presents ready to deliver to children around the world. But what is this elf hiding and does he have other tricks up his sleeves? This bad elf could be keeping some of the toys for himself and the audience will follow the adventure as a whole range of colourful characters arrive onstage to sing and tell stories, with Christmas day just around the corner. But no Christmas story would be complete without an look-in from the man himself, and this is why the familiar face of Santa will also be making an appearance.
This Christmas sees a host of children’s shows make their way to the capital, but with “The Night Before Christmas” they will get a spectacular mixture of story-telling, singing and memorable characters, ensuring that it provides the best way to celebrate the season in 2010.
“The Night Before Christmas begins its run at the Ambassador’s Theatre on Tuesday 7th December 2010 and will finish just in time for the real night before Christmas on Friday 24th December 2010.
